  • pH measurement: Six technical tips

    The pH value is one of the most important and therefore also one of the most frequently measured quantities in analytical chemistry. Sometimes, a simple pH test strip is sufficient for making a rapid check; precise pH meters are, however, required whenever accurate measuring results are needed. Such a pH meter is available in nearly every laboratory and is generally ready for use at a moment's ...

  • Simultaneous regeneration of exhausted zeolite and nitrogen recovery using an air stripping method at alkaline pH

    Ammonium nitrogen recovery using natural zeolite from the permeates of anaerobic membrane bioreactors was investigated with batch and continuous experiments. Regeneration of exhausted zeolite was compared between mechanical shaking and air stripping, and experimental results showed the superiority of air stripping over the shaking. Liquid circulation and air flow rates were optimized in a ...

  • The Pitfalls of Process TOC analysis and how to avoid them case study

    Since the introduction of Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzers by Dow, Union Carbide and Automated Environmental Systems in thel960,s,l-5\ they have proven to be an invaluable tool in the environmental and process monitoring fields. While technologies have advanced since then, certain performance characteristics required for true process control have been notably absent. The purpose of this paper ...

  • From Wastewater Treatment to Sweet Pineapples

    In wastewater treatment, ammonia that is removed from sewage used to be discharged directly to the atmosphere. Nowadays, studies have identified that ammonia emissions are of major concern to air quality. This has led to a new way of thinking. Sulzer offers modern closed-air-loop systems for wastewater treatment that transform ammonia into a common soil fertilizer. This reuse of a waste product ...

  • Miller Argent case study

    On the hills above Merthyr Tydfil, Miller Argent is undertaking a highly ambitious land reclamation scheme that is also involving the extraction of coal by opencast methods. Known as the 'Ffos-y-fran Land Reclamation Scheme', this is the third and final phase of the East Merthyr Reclamation Scheme which is expected to run for another 17 years. The reclamation works will include the removal of ...

  • Application of PTFE membrane for ammonia removal in a membrane contactor

    The feasibility of a membrane contactor system for ammonia removal was studied. The mass transfer coefficient was used to quantitatively compare the effect of various operation conditions on ammonia removal efficiency. Effective removal of ammonia was possible with a Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane contactor system at all tested conditions. Among the various operation parameters, contact ...

  • ITS marketing manager quoted in WaterTech

    Professional, ethical testing will start you off on the right foot and will directly determine which services the customer may need. Many substances could be in a customer’s water, but, “It’s not necessary to test for every parameter; that’s what labs are for,” advises Rob Samborn, director of sales and marketing for HM Digital, a Los Angeles-based maker of water ...

  • Water quality products magazine features ITS

    The decision for a company to seek approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on a product can be beneficial in the long run, but the road to get there may be a long one. In August 1998, Industrial Test Systems (ITS) began its journey on the path to EPA approval for its Sensafe Free Chlorine Water Check test strips. After many outside studies, research, testing and reporting, ...

  • Systematic model development for partial nitrification of landfill leachate in a SBR

    This study deals with partial nitrification in a sequencing batch reactor (PN-SBR) treating raw urban landfill leachate. In order to enhance process insight (e.g. quantify interactions between aeration, CO2 stripping, alkalinity, pH, nitrification kinetics), a mathematical model has been set up. Following a systematic procedure, the model was successfully constructed, calibrated and validated ...

  • Treatment of wastewater from a low-temperature carbonization process industry through biological and chemical oxidation processes for recycle/reuse: a case study

    Low-temperature carbonization (LTC) of coal generates highly complex wastewater warranting stringent treatment. Developing a techno-economically viable treatment facility for such wastewaters is a challenging task. The paper discusses a case study pertaining to an existing non-performing effluent treatment plant (ETP). The existing ETP comprising an ammonia stripper followed by a single stage ...

  • Phosphorus release risk on a calcareous purple soil in southwest China

    Growing concerns about water eutrophication made it imperative to control phosphorus (P) losses from agricultural soil to water. A Quantity-Intensity (Q-I) relationship that reflects the potential of soil P release to water was developed on the calcareous purple soil in southwestern China. Results showed that a change point appeared at 30 mg kg−1 for Olsen-P and 22 mg kg−1 for iron-oxide ...

  • Strategies to optimize phosphate removal from industrial anaerobic effluents by magnesium ammonium phosphate (MAP) production

    Owing to more stringent phosphate discharge requirements and the increasing prices of fertilizers, beneficial recovery and reuse of phosphate from industrial anaerobic effluents is becoming an important issue. Phosphate recovery by struvite or magnesium ammonium phosphate (MAP) permits its recycling in the fertilizer industry because struvite is a valuable slow release fertilizer. Two different ...


  • Effect of Backfill Thrust on Vertical Pressure Distribution in Reinforced Soil Model Walls

    The magnitude and distribution of vertical stress are required for the design of reinforced soil wall. A laboratory investigation utilizing a physical model of reinforced soil wall was performed to determine the effect of backfill thrust on the vertical pressure distribution within the reinforced zone. Results obtained were compared with those predicted by the theoretical vertical pressure ...

  • Laboratory Investigation of Earth Walls Simultaneously Reinforced by Strips and Random Reinforcement

    The performance of reinforced earth structures depends, among other factors, on the shear strength of the backfill material used in construction. The shear strength can be enhanced by the use of random reinforcement. This paper presents the result of laboratory investigations concerning the effects of several types of random reinforcement on soil strength and, in particular, on the performance of ...
